If you're familiar with the military life, you may know that we spend a lot of time moving. Saying hello. Saying goodbye. We also spend a lot of time making plans with friends for the coming years. "Let's all move to Colorado!" We'll say confidently. As if it's as simple as could be.
"I'll visit! For sure!" we say. When in reality, we may never get to see some of our best friends again.We do this because it allows us to have some sort of semblance of control. But we all know. We all know that it's not going to happen. "I'll visit! For sure!" we say. When in reality, we may never get to see some of our best friends again.
It's an interesting life, the military one. Ups and downs. Some days we hate it. Some days we love it. This is a photo of my brother and my nephew. We had big plans of getting out of the military and going to Colorado to let all of our kids grow up together. It all sounds so nice but it's a sad reality when you admit that it just might not be the best decision for the family, after all.
